On Sunday, February 23rd, Route 66 played host to the biggest Carcadia @ Route 66 ever. More than 65 cars of all makes and models from extremely rare classics to late model imports showed up at the parking lot behind the Arcadia Denny’s located at Huntington Drive & Santa Anita Avenue.
With those cars came the biggest crowd ever with approximately 100 drivers and spectators. (Photo albums at Facebook.com/Carcadia66.)
Now on only its third event, Carcadia is definitely becoming a signature event to bring the community together in Arcadia and beyond. In fact, exhibitors came from many neighboring cities including La Canada, Glendora, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, and Duarte to show off their rides and check out interesting classics.

The City of Arcadia has been very supportive of the event as have Denny’s and other local leaders. Arcadia’s Best Foundation has co-sponsored it with local creative agency turn3 Creative. The next event will be Sunday, March 23rd, at 7:30 a,m.
